The Queen Mary will be bringing back fan favorite character The Ringmaster to Dark Harbor, and bringing in a number of new attractions, when the Halloween event returns on October 2nd. Among the additions scare seekers will encounter are a voodoo themed area brimming with black magic, and an intimate interactive experience.
In a press release, the Queen Mary described the Voodoo Village being filled “with dark magic gypsies that will taunt guests passing by in a setting wrought with shrunken heads, voodoo dolls and the feared Voodoo Queen.” Details are scant on the interactive experience, but guests will be required to sign some sort of waiver before participating, and they promise this “exclusive experiement” will take place in ” afrightening setting that will leave a lasting impression jarring extreme fear.”
To make room for the new activities, the Long Beach attraction has scuttled the former Hellfire and Containment mazes, but will be bringing back characters Half Hatch Harry, the Captain, and the Ringmaster, along with the Deadrise maze, and Freakshow and Circus areas.
The Queen Mary teased that a new terrifying ride will be unveiled in the coming weeks, along with additional mazes that will venture into previously unexplored portions of the ship.
The annual event kicks off October 2 and runs for 20 haunted evenings through November 2 from 7 p.m. to midnight. Ticket prices start at just $20 online, with Fast Fright, VIP Passes, and lodging packages available. Season passes are also an option for optimal adrenaline seekers.
